Host a Cancer Education Program in your Community

Connect with DF/HCC Researchers

Where opportunity allows, the Center for Cancer Equity and Engagement is happy to connect your organization, group, or program to DF/HCC research projects in need of community advisors and support. For questions and to learn more, contact Doris Sempasa.

Get Information on DF/HCC Research

We believe research begins and ends with people. We want to make sure relevant scientific information and results are disseminated appropriately in our communities. Whether its findings from an exciting study or the latest medical discoveries, our communities deserve timely and reliable access to our results. We work with research teams and scientists to disseminate relevant and important research to our surrounding communities. For more information, contact us here to learn more.


We'd love to connect with you. Please contact Doris Sempasa at with questions or to learn more.
